One of the questions DogWatch Dealers are frequently asked is “Can my dog get out of the hidden fence containment area?” The answer is that if the initial training was done properly, this will rarely happen. If it does happen, it is usually for one of the following reasons. The first reason accounts for approximately 90% of all incidents. Read post »

I know I want to play with those deer, but that dang DogWatch Hidden Fence is keeping me in my yard...Posted by DogWatch of Montana Hidden Pet Fences on Sunday, December 17, 2017
If you’ve ever wondered, “do hidden or ‘invisible’ fences for dogs really work?”, you’ll want to check out this amazing video!
In the clip from DogWatch of Montana, a young black Labrador Retriever named Boone spots a herd a deer in his backyard. He is clearly interested in these wild animals, but thanks to his DogWatch Hidden Fence, he stays within his boundaries and does not chase them.
Great products plus excellent training equals a safe and happy dog! Good boy Boone, and great work DogWatch of Montana!

Hidden fencing (a.k.a. electric dog fencing, invisible fencing, or underground fencing) has been in existence for a long time but has recently become more popular due to the ever increasing fence restrictions and our ability to trust more in technological advancements. There are some people, however, that are still leery due mostly to myths associated with this type of pet containment. We would like to address these myths and help educate the general public about the safety, humanity and convenience of hidden fences.
The six most popular myths associated with hidden fences are 1) the shock is dangerous and inhumane; 2) it doesn’t work on my breed; 3) my dog will never want to come outside again; 4) it will make my dog become aggressive; 5) it is too expensive and 6) store-bought systems work just as well as professionally-installed hidden fences.

Walking German Shepherds (and many other dogs) on leash can be a challenge for the average dog owner. That’s why DogWatch created the SideWalker® Leash Trainer, a training collar that gently corrects overly enthusiastic leash pulling and helps dogs (of all shapes and sizes) learn appropriate on-leash behavior.
To see how the SideWalker helped one German Shepherd pet parent gain control of walks with her dogs, we reached out to Lorna, a DogWatch customer from Van Hornesville, New York. Lorna is pet parent to two beautiful German Shepherds, a four year-old female named Bella (left) and a two year-old male named Solo (right). Both dogs were avid leash pullers, especially Solo.

Here at DogWatch, we know that no two pets are exactly alike. That’s why our DogWatch receiver collar settings can be individually adjusted to suit the breed, size, age and temperament of each dog and/or cat on the system. But what if your dog is hearing impaired, and can’t hear the audible warning signal? Or what if your pet has sensitive skin or a short coat, and needs a lower profile contact post? DogWatch has solutions!

Much of what makes our modern technology work is invisible. Our cell phones, televisions, and computers receive images and sounds through the air. GPS talks to satellites and tells us where we are, and our printers whir into motion, no strings attached. The invisibility of the workings of technology makes it all a little mysterious; some people even find it scary; our ancestors would have called it “magic.”
